Skin aging is a natural process that can be sped up by unhealthy habits like getting too much sun, smoking, a poor diet or a harsh cleansing regimen. But no matter what shape your skin is in, a non-surgical facelift can help reverse or minimize these effects. Dr. Maryann Prewitt is pleased to offer non-surgical facelifts at HealthWellnessMD in Dallas, Texas.

Non-Surgical Facelift Q & A

by Maryann Prewitt, MD, FACOG

What happens to our collagen as we age?

Most age-related skin changes affect the dermis, which is the lower layer of the two primary layers of cells that make up the skin. Throughout the aging process, this layer can lose 20-80% of its density. Cell changes lead to slower collagen and elastin production which makes it more difficult for skin to repair itself and affects the skin’s overall structure. In other words, skin loses collagen and plumpness with age, making it thinner, more fragile and subject to wrinkling.

What are the main benefits of a non-surgical facelift?

The benefits of choosing a non-surgical facelift are no incisions, no pain, and no scarring just to name a few. Non-surgical facelifts can help reverse or minimize collagen loss by stimulating new collagen production. It’s a quick and easy procedure with a minimal recovery time that leads to a more youthful skin appearance.

What are the benefits of Rising Phoenix Non-Surgical Facelift?

The Rising Phoenix Non-Surgical Facelift provides “surgery without a knife.” A concentrated light beam applies heat to rejuvenate and resurface the skin by lifting and tightening. Dr. Prewitt pretreats the skin then uses multiple modalities to produce maximum results. This state of the art equipment safely delivers more energy than other laser systems, with more dramatic results and less downtime.

Are there risks?

Rising Phoenix non-surgical facelifts are considered safe, but like all medical procedures, laser skin resurfacing may cause side effects. Shortly after the procedure, you may experience skin redness, itchiness or swelling that reduces over time. While less likely there is also a risk of infection, scarring, blisters and changes in skin color. If you have particularly sensitive skin or a skin condition such as rosacea or acne Dr. Prewitt can help you decide if the procedure is right for you as well as discuss ways to minimize related risks.
